MB scan found malware: Trojan.Dropper.Agent.fo in Wireless Update android system app. Can't remove the app because it's a system app. And can't disable it - disable box is grayed out. What do I do?

Malware Bytes (MB) found malware Trojan.Dropper.Agent.fo in my Wireless Update (WU) system app. MB remove app choice not possible for a system app. And the manual disable app choice is grayed out so can't do that either. What else can I do?

Well, the good news is I deescalated to Android/PUP.Riskware.Autoins.Fota.fscbv.  Thus, you still probably want to remove.

You can use this method to remove.

Use this command at step 7 under Uninstalling Adups via ADB command line to remove:

adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.fota.wirelessupdate
